What to Newsletter: I’m a big fan of both the content and voice featured in the Quartz Daily Brief. The team at Quartz provides a quick, clear look at the most important and interesting news from the global economy each morning. It’s one of my daily tools. I’ll think you dig it too. Sign up here.
+ What to TV: I should spend my weekends avoiding news, especially politics. But (lucky for you) I’m a sick addict. And each Sunday, I look forward to watching Halperin, Heilemann, and McKinnon wrap up the week with a unique look at what the hell just happened in DC. On Showtime: The Circus: Inside The Biggest Story On Earth.
+ What to Bid Farewell: The final episode of Girls will air this weekend. As WaPo’s Hank Stuever writes: Girls goes out as the one thing it always wanted to be: A good TV show. Sidenote: Aside from showers, I almost never disrobe (I wear jeans to the beach). Meanwhile, Lena Dunham’s character on Girls has spent much of the past six seasons sans clothes. At this point, I seriously think I’m more familiar with the various parts of her body than my own.
